Still going through the previous gowith recordings, as we await the final master of the latest recording session. The new gowith, which was recorded to tape at Zero Return by Jim Marrer and mixed and mastered completely to tape in the analog domain, should be in our hands any day now. Until then, here’s our last one, captured live at Sunbrimmer Records in Avondale Estate, GA.
Materialize, the latest recording by Witchchord is out now on Bandcamp. This is our second release, and, while still instrumental and proggy, it’s a bit darker and heavier. Once again, it features the talents of Shane Gillis on guitar and keys, Tracy Harris on drums, Tom Sellers on keys and yours truly on bass. Artwork once again was done by Shea Goodwin. If you’re looking for some freaky prog rock, give it a listen and maybe a download!
Four bitter pills to ingest…
Isn’t it obvious by now? gowith were prophets in 2012.
As the new gowith is being mastered . . . revisiting the old stuff. Acoustics, pinball swap meet field recordings . . . a cool document of a really fun weekend of music and friendship.
Two of the finest practitioners of unsettling and enveloping audioscapes team here for varied takes on drone, noise, and sonic wrangling.
Alabama’s Clawing is a collaboration between the prolific trio of Jeff McLeod (Gezoleen, Saragashum, Bert) Austin Gaines (Calques, Hadals, Japanese Women), and poet / spoken word artist Matt Finney (It Only Gets Worse). Their work here is an expansion on the ghostly world conjured on their masterful debut, Spectral Estate, with an unsettling aura that rests atop a current of anxiety and contemplation.
Offerbeest is one of the many guises for Dutch artist Maurice de Jong, perhaps best known for his work in the twisted black metal / experimental terror that is Gnaw Their Tongues. With Offerbeest, Maurice relies on analog synths to conjure bleak passages through demon haunts. High quality cassettes (edition of 100), digital downloads and streaming courtesy of Portland’s Nailbat Tapes.
You float through the void in your doomed ship, your mates all dead, biding your time staring into a dim mirror, repulsed and entranced by a hideous reflection.
Volume 5 in a series of joylessly noisy musicks is now available for download and streaming on my Bandcamp page. I have to say that this is my favorite in the series. Deep, dark and thematic. Board the doomed ship and find out. Features excellent artwork once again by Austin Gaines.
